America's NEW Declaration of independence!


Its time to stand up and join the national movement to make America energy independent by the year 2025. Check out the official website at www.ei2025.org.

He's a quick summary of the mission statement:
Our mission is to help America become more aware of the current and potential dangers of our being dependent upon other countries for our energy needs. We will also present possible solutions and highlight the benefits of becoming energy independent.

Our mission will be complete when the US has adopted a twenty year plan to achieve energy independence with the appropriate level of investment, assigned accountability and support by our elected officials to see this through to completion.


Al Gore was singing this song back in the 2000 election while Bush was talking about drilling in Alaska. See what good that brought us? Can anyone say "Iraq war"? Its better late than ever to get back on the track toward energy independence. No more wars for oil and no more debt to the Saudi royal family!

Sony BMG got Busted for illegally promoting garbage!

Many of us already know that Major Labels manufacture crap-o-la that just needs pay-o-la just to get heard. Well, New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer (the top Democratic contender for NY Governor in the 2006 elections) stepped up and shut down Sony BMG's illegal scam. In a nutshell, Eliot Spitzer single handedly made it harder for Sony BMG to shove crap down out throats like J.Lo, Jessica Simpson, and Fatty Koo! (Really, who the fuck actually came up with a name like Fatty Koo? )

Mtv News got the scoop, check out this quote:

"Our investigation shows that, contrary to listener expectations that songs are selected for airplay based on artistic merit and popularity, airtime is often determined by undisclosed payoffs to radio stations and their employees," Spitzer said. "This [BMG settlement] is a model for breaking the pervasive influence of bribes in the industry."


Read the rest of the article to find out which radio stations were involved and how they cheated the public with fake contests and call-in campaigns. This is a victory for fans of REAL music, independent labels who don't have to compete with the deep pockets of Sony BMG, the integrity (if any) of the Music & Radio biz, and of course Eliot Spitzer's campaign for NY Governor.

American Hiroshima: Are you ready for the Nuke attack?

Sounds like crazy but the word on the street is that AL Qaida already has nuclear weapons inside the US and they are planning an operation called "American Hiroshima". This sounds spooky and downright like a conspiracy theory, but with every one distracted with nutty Supreme Court Nominees, Karl Rove committing crimes against the US, and the new London attacks, we better not loose focus on the real threats.

A big ass gang of Democrats have already taken notice and are demanding that the Bush Crime Family act on it. A new report explains:

The plans for the devastating nuclear attack on the U.S. have been under development for more than a decade. It is designed as a final deadly blow of defeat to the U.S., which is seen by al-Qaida and its allies as "the Great Satan."

At least half the nuclear weapons in the al-Qaida arsenal were obtained for cash from the Chechen terrorist allies.

According to Williams, former CIA Director George Tenet informed President Bush one month after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that at least two suitcase nukes had reached al-Qaida operatives in the U.S.

According to the author, the news sent Bush "through the roof," prompting him to order his national security team to give nuclear terrorism priority over every other threat to America. The president reportedly ordered the building of underground bunkers away from major metropolitan areas for use by federal government managers following an attack.

So if Bush already knows, I guess they're making sure their OWN asses are covered, but what about the rest of us? Since we're still pissing away BILLIONS of dollars in the illegal Iraqi war we're not going to have enough funding to prepare our cities and citizens for an attack.

Check out this website for info on preparing for a nuclear attack. The Russians and the Chinese are already prepared, while the US is asleep watching MTV. Wake up, read, prepare, don't get distracted because these assholes crave another attack just so they can declare Martial Law!

(Shit, the House of Reps just renewed the Patriot Act, what other proof do you need?)

-- Lookout for a "staged" Nuclear Attack on South Carolina this August.

Republican Idiots are going to get us killed!

Its Official: Bush's Foreign Policy AND Republican Idiots help create MORE TERRORISTS!!



That's right kids, you heard correctly. Find your nearest neighborhood Republican dumb-fuck who continues to support Bush, his foreign policy, and his henchmen in Congress, and thank them for helping to ruin our national security. We're not even talking about Karl Rove committing treason, we're talking about another Republican cunt rag: Rep. Tom Tancredo from Littleton, Colorado.

Tom Tancredo actually suggested publicly that a great idea for handling terrorist attacks is to bomb Mecca. BOMB MECCA??!?! Are you fucking kidding? To his defense he said it was a just a hypothetical idea in the event of a dirty bomb attack. But on the real... this jerk-nut has just suggested bombing THE most holiest of holy Islamic sites. That would be like kicking a bee hive naked!

Check out this new report that proves our invasion of Iraq turned average Muslim citizens into radical insurgents:

A separate Israeli analysis of 154 foreign fighters compiled by a leading terrorism researcher found that despite the presence of some senior Al Qaeda operatives who are organizing the volunteers, ''the vast majority of [non-Iraqi] Arabs killed in Iraq have never taken part in any terrorist activity prior to their arrival in Iraq."

''Only a few were involved in past Islamic insurgencies in Afghanistan, Bosnia, or Chechnya," the Israeli study says. Out of the 154 fighters analyzed, only a handful had past associations with terrorism, ... American intelligence officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, and terrorism specialists paint a similar portrait of the suicide bombers wreaking havoc in Iraq: Prior to the Iraq war, they were not Islamic extremists seeking to attack the United States, as Al Qaeda did four years ago, but are part of a new generation of terrorists responding to calls to defend their fellow Muslims from ''crusaders" and ''infidels."

''The president is right that Iraq is a main front in the war on terrorism, but this is a front we created," said Peter Bergen, a terrorism specialist at the nonpartisan New America Foundation, a Washington think tank.


In conclusion, our presence in Iraq is motivating average Muslims into taking up arms, imagine what SUGGESTING that we bomb Mecca will do to other Muslims sitting on the fence? This is not the way to win the peace, we cannot continue to allow these dumb-fuck Republican dip shits to continue their ignorant foreign policy that only makes us a bigger target for terrorism. Think about it.

Vote the GOP out in 2006!

Patriot Act II - heating up in Congress. ACT NOW!

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

-- Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790), Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759


Its getting ugly in congress! With all of this noise over Karl Rove committing treason, the new Supreme Court vacancies, missing white girls in Aruba, Space shuttles, London bombers, and Tom Cruise... we better not loose focus on the Patriot Act II.

Florida Democratic candidate for congress Frank Gonzalez suggested this CATO Institute link on the subject. They posted the following:

"The PATRIOT Act already gives government too much power to spy on ordinary Americans, but things could get far worse. Congress is considering adding a broad new investigative power, known as the administrative subpoena, that would allow the Federal Bureau of Investigation to gain access to anyone's financial, medical, employment and even library records without approval from a judge and even without the target knowing about it. Members of Congress should block this disturbing provision from becoming law," according to an editorial in the New York Times.


Luckily the good folks at the ACLU already have an online form you can use to automatically notify your senators and your representative on this issue. Click here to take action, it only takes 2 minutes and it will get your voice heard. Tell a friend, a neighbor, anyone... stay focused and keep the government from spying on us!

Clean Money will Clean up our Government

Crooked politicians (like Tom Delay and George Bush) are funded by crooked corporations (like Walmart, MBNA, and Halliburton). No matter how hard we fight, usually good candidates hardly match the fundraising and influence of those corporate whores in the pockets of special interests.

The most logical solution is having Clean Money Campaign Reform (CMCR), something that already exists in several states with great results. Here's how its broken down:


Problem: Campaigns are too expensive
CMCR Solution: Limits campaign spending.

Problem: Too much special-interest influence
CMCR Solution: Prohibits special-interest contributions to participating candidates.

Problem: Candidates and lawmakers spend too much time chasing money
CMCR Solution: Eliminates need for fundraising.

Problem: Good people don't have a fair chance to compete
CMCR Solution: Provides a financially level playing field.

Problem: Large contributors are more important than individual voters
CMCR Solution: Restores principle of one person, one vote each with equal influence.


It's time to get to the root of our problems with these corrupt rat bastards that are ruining our country. Lets cut out their funding and level the playing field so that honest and respectable citizens can actually compete toe-to-toe with career politicians and win back our country for the people! Sounds crazy but we need to start fighting now so we'll have something left to fight for. Get involved with your local state government and get em' to reform our campaign finance laws. Peace!

4th25 gives fake soldiers a reality check


Like we mentioned before, 4th25 (pronounced"4th Quarter") is a group of emcees and producers deployed in Iraq who recorded an album in Baghdad based on their experiences in the war. Now that the album is on iTunes we had a chance to check it out and it lives up to the hype. (By the way the album is sold out on CD Baby, iTunes is the only spot to get it 24/7!)

One of the best tracks on that album is called "Reality Check", where they spit straight venom at all the emcees and gangstas who claim to be "soldiers" in their rap songs. Specifically the Destiny's Child song "Soldier" featuring Lil' Wayne & T.I. struck a nerve with 4th25. Just check out these lyrics:

"Walk a mile in my boots you couldn't make it
So you all soldiers at home,
but out here you can't fake it
That's why ya'll aint here, aint it?
Its just easier to act hard on credit than it is to make a payment
...
Look, I'm hearing things right now that I don't like at all
Cuz according to Destiny's Child aint none of us here Soldiers at all
And the whole country right now, they just in love with that song
But I aint hear them say nothing but keep using the word SOLDIER wrong!

And I've been through too much out here for you to use the term lightly
And these muthafuckers they are describing, they are nothing like me!

I'm glad their marketing strategy worked WHILE WE OUT HERE DYING..."

After listening to the song "Reality Check" a few times you can't watch the Soldier Video by Destiny's Child again without laughing or being disgusted. Especially since what the girl's describe as a soldier is nothing like the reality our troops are facing in Iraq.

Whatever, let the truth be told, check out "Live from Iraq" by 4th25 and buy the CD. It'll do more for the troops than any crappy ass, Chinese-made, car magnet would ever do!

London 7/7/05

Prayers go out to the victims of today's attack in London. This smells like another 9/11 (notice the date). This eye-for-an-eye policy that we continue to adopt breeds never ending war. That's word to the middle east, Russia / Chechnya, the conflicts in Africa, South America, Asia, and the gang wars in ours streets. Humanity needs to step its game up. This is why we're against torture, illegal wars, hate, intolerance, religious fanaticism, etc. Let's hope we don't loose these painful lessons. Also, God knows if the G8 summit's agenda on ending world poverty and tackling Global Warming will continue as planned now that this attack just took place today. Lets pray that humanity can grow from this.

Extreme Right-wing Republican = Taliban/Al Qaida

We had to republish this great post from DailyKos.com that compares the crazy wacko extreme right-wing bastards in Washington D.C. like George W. Bush, Tom Delay (who said birth control pills caused the Columbine massacre), Bill Frist, Jerry Falwell, and many others. The crazy Bush Crime Family religious nuts who would have been part of the Salem Witch Hunts or the Inquisition a few hundred years ago are commonly referred to as the "American Taliban". Below is a comparison of the American Taliban with the real Taliban and of course we have the Liberals (us) to bring everything back down to earth.

Religion in government

Al Qaida/Taliban: One and the same
American Taliban: One and the same
Liberals: Separation of church and state

Schools

Al Qaida/Taliban: Religious indoctrination. Run by clergy.
American Taliban: School prayer. Religious indoctrination (creationism and "intelligent design"). Private religious school system.
Liberals: Leave religious teachings to parents and Sunday school.

Women

Al Qaida/Taliban: No school, must cover entire body, no rights
American Taliban: Government control over reproductive freedoms, hostility to Title IX, hostility to working women
Liberals: Equality of the sexes

Religious freedom

Al Qaida/Taliban: 'Think like us, or we'll whiip you and/or chop off your head'
American Taliban: 'Think like us, or we'll condemn you to hell'
Liberals: To each her own

Homosexuality

Al Qaida/Taliban: Eradicate them from society
American Taliban: Eradicate them from society
Liberals: Equality under the law

Torture

Al Qaida/Taliban: Torture them or chop off their heads
American Taliban: Torture them or homosexually rape them.
Liberals: No torture

Medicine and Science

Al Qaida/Taliban: Faith-based world view
American Taliban: Faith-based world view
Liberals: Reality-based community


Like Howard Dean said on "The Daily Show with John Stewart": The Democratic Party's core belief can be summed up into "Love thy neighbor as you thy yourself, but you don't get to pick your neighbors". Yet, the intolerant views of the American Taliban, by trying to force their beliefs & the government into your life, is the kinda of crap we need to continue fighting against every day!

Act now to Protect Our Rights!

Before you do ANYTHING today, sign this petition!


Now that Sandra Day O'Connor stepped down it's time to get loud about keeping a moderate voice like hers (its the best we can get from Bush) on the Supreme Court. Despite her involvement in getting Bush appointed president, some of her decisions really went a long way towards protecting our rights (check it out here).


Click here to Sign this Petition to let your Senators know that you want your rights to be protected!

The Bush Crime Family loyal to their women.

Katherine Harris & Sandra Day O'Connor should have dated Ol' Dirty Bastard instead.

It's a sad farewell for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O' Connor, the Reagan appointed, historic first woman to serve on the bench, and the disgraceful "swing vote" in Bush v. Gore. Consortiumnews.com put up a detailed story about how Sandra Day O'Connor spit on the constitution and allow thousands of voters to be disenfranchised in Florida just get to Bush illegally elected back in 2000. Check out these quotes:

... the five most conservative justices on the U.S. Supreme Court stepped in to stop the counting of votes for president, an unprecedented act in American history. The slim court majority agreed to suspend the Florida recount and to hear Bush's appeal on Dec. 11.

The hand count of these uncounted ballots would have reduced this disparity between the wealthier and the poorer precincts. Instead, the U.S. Supreme Court cited the 14th Amendment to ensure that greater weight was given to the votes of wealthier whites in Florida than to poorer African-Americans and elderly Jews.

The irony - the outrage to many civil rights leaders - was that the 14th Amendment had been enacted after the Civil War to prevent discrimination against African-Americans. Now, it was being used to disenfranchise them and to grant greater voting power to whites.

Sandra Day O'Connor had joined in this unprecedented and seemingly illogical opinion that handed the White House to George W. Bush. According to some sources, O'Connor - the court's supposed "swing vote" - even wrote the unsigned majority opinion in Bush v. Gore.

As I reported on Dec. 11, O'Connor was visibly upset -- indeed furious -- when on Election Night, Nov. 7, the networks predicted that Gore would take Florida. "This is terrible," she said, as the announcement came from the television ...

When O'Connor angrily left to get her dinner from the buffet table upstairs, O'Connor's husband John explained that she was upset because the couple wanted to retire to Arizona, but that his wife would never vacate her seat if Gore won. She would remain on the court to deny Gore the opportunity of replacing her.

A close O'Connor friend, a prominent Democrat, confirms that. When told about the Election Night episode, he said, "Oh, no, no, no. That's not her plan. The plan is that, if Bush wins, Chief Justice [William] Rehnquist will retire, and Bush will then nominate Sandra to be the first female United States chief justice in history. That's the plan. I don't think they will ever leave Washington."


Oh really? THAT was the plan Sandra? Well history turned out differently and by putting her own ambitions over what should have been a decision to protect the civil rights of all voters she'll be known a selfish and heart-less ***bad-word-goes-here***.

There is NO honor amongst thieves
.

Tell that to another prominent female member of the Bush Crime Family, the infamous Katherine Harris who wants to run for the US Senate against Democrat Bill Nelson. Well, the top Bush puppet master and political advisor Karl Rove (aka Satan's cousin) is trying to get another top republican to enter the race.

Katherine Harris' folks are pissed! Thehill.com has a story on the outrage from the Harris camp. Check it out:
"It's unimaginable that the White House folks and the National Republican Senatorial Committee would be so disloyal to Katherine Harris, especially after all she has done for the Bush family and the Republican Party," a Florida political operative who supports Harris said. "It's unconscionable and a stab in the back."

Harris backers are irritated that State House Speaker Allan Bense met with White House chief of staff Karl Rove and NRSC Chairwoman Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.) this week to discuss challenging Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) next year.

The operative added, "If it is true, they should be ashamed and embarrassed, considering she stepped aside at their request for the president and Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.) in 2004. It's her turn."


Oh really? So THAT was the plan Katherine? Ha ha ha! No honor amongst thieves. Wait a minute, lets go back to the part that was bold where her peoples said something about " after all she has done for the Bush family and the Republican Party". Oh, what could they be talking about? Oh yeah, lets allow Greg Palast to tell it in an article from 2001:

The systematic program that disfranchised these legal voters [in the 2000 presidential election], directed by the offices of Florida Governor Jeb Bush and Secretary of State Katherine Harris, was so quiet, subtle and intricate that if not for George W. Bush's 500-vote eyelash margin of victory, certified by Harris, the chance of the purge's discovery would have been vanishingly small.

People from other states who have arrived in Florida with a felony conviction in their past number "clearly over 50,000 and likely over 100,000," ... estimates [say] that 80 percent arrive with voting rights intact, which they do not forfeit by relocating to Florida.

Nevertheless, agencies controlled by Harris and Bush ordered county officials to reject attempts by these eligible voters to register, while, publicly, the governor's office states that it adheres to court rulings not to obstruct these ex-offenders in the exercise of their civil rights. Further, with the aid of a Republican-tied database firm, Harris' office used sophisticated computer programs to hunt those felons eligible to vote and ordered them thrown off the voter registries.


Ok rewind the tape to the part about "All that she's done for the Bush Family and the Republican party". Oh God this is hilarious stuff, are you laughing your asses off yet? IF her voter disenfranchising weren't such a big (and illegal) deal then why would her staffers be so pissed that the Bush Crime Family is shitting on her over her desire to run for senate?

In conclusion folks, Sandra Day O' Connor and Katherine Harris were two key players in the stolen election of 2000 that got Dubya elected and set off this freak series of events that has led us to war, deficits, patriot acts, lying to congress, etc, etc. These two lovely ladies had illusions of grandeur, and like Ol' Dirty Bastard would say, "That means hoe, you been shit-ted on!
I'm not the first dog that's shitted on your lawn!"

Sandra enjoy your retirement without ever having been Chief Justice and Katherine enjoy the betrayal from the Bush Crime Family. When the "right to choose" is revoked, women everywhere can thank the two of you for your wonderful contributions to the feminist movement.
